What to think of the Rams D after getting 9 sacks vs. AZ?

Rams defense looked DOMINANT last night. Where does this rank them in the league? I think theyve got the potential to be a top 10 defense with Fisher behind them.....

They are definitely worth owning, especially with Miami coming up next week, but it is important to bear in mind that AZ really struggles to protect the passer and is an ideal matchup for a defense that gets most of their fantasy value from sacks. I think they are behind SF, CHI, AZ, SEA, MIN, and BAL going forward, but you could probably make the case that they are just as good or better than anyone else out there.

I think whoever plays vs Zona is a good play that week. You saw what happened, right? The Rams marched right down the field for a score, then did nothing for a very long stretch. The kind of stretch that wears out your D vs any kind of decent O. Startable vs bad teams maybe.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

17 sacks in 2 weeks - vs MIA & STL...

They can't run the ball and they can't pass protect.

Their D is decent, but not dominant, and the offense isn't going to be able to sustain drives w/ their o-line issues.

Teams are going to tee-off on them all year IMO...

In case you were wondering:

BUF, MIN, SF, GB, week 10 BYE, ATL, STL, NYJ, SEA, DET, CHI
Kate Upton's Husband - dead
Mr. Blonde - champ
Yo Soy Fiesta - dead
Old South - champ
Full of Fanta Tonight - champ
Sex Panther (SB) - dead
Sex Panther (FF) - dead
Sex Panther (IBL) - dead
